Cons turn ACOA into nest of mismanagement and ethical breaches
As New Democrat critic for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, I posed the following question today (May 29th) in the House of Commons.
Atlantic Canadians want economic development - instead, ACOA is becoming a home for Conservative mismanagement and ethical breaches.
Yesterday, Conservatives had the audacity to claim they didn't rig the ACOA hiring process.
But the report clearly stated, "decisions in the hiring process were based on Mr. MacAdam's circumstances as a minister's staff member."
And then the Defence Minister's chief of staff interfered, and changed the report.
So let's try again, Mr. Speaker.
What consequences did the minister's chief of staff face for this attempted cover-up?
